    Default Charity Pheasant Hunt to Support Military Families

    I am hosting a charity Pheasant Hunt December 6-10, 2013 in Winner, South Dakota.

    The charity is called the Unit Scholarship Fund (USF). The USF awards merit-based post-secondary scholarships to the children and spouses of one of the nation's most elite military fighting forces.

    This hunt will be fully catered and offer exclusive guided access on more than 10,000 acres of prime wild pheasant hunting land.

    If you would like more detailed information, please e-mail me at: bowen@unitscholarshipfund.org

    Thank You. Bill

    The charity is called the Unit Scholarship Fund (USF).

    The USF offers merit based post-secondary scholarships to the children and spouses of the soldiers assigned to one of the nation's most elite military (Army) fighting forces.

    As with the soldiers we support, the USF is an all volunteer outfit. Our web site is getting new content, but it currently has good information right now that will explain who the USF is and about our mission. Web site address is: http/unitscholarshipfund.net. Or just search "Unit Scholarship Fund"

    If you would like more detailed information about the hunt, please directly e-mail me and I will send you an information paper: bowen@unitscholarshipfund.org

    Horrible day today for our Navy brothers/sisters at the Navy Yard in DC. Pray for them.

    Thank You. Bill

    Do I understand then that only Army dependents, and those who were in only certain designated units are eligible for the scholarships??

    Yes Sir. The USF was formed in 1993 by a group of unit veterans of the Battle of Mogadishu as a way to provide some support to the kids of their friends who were wounded or KIA.

    Since 1993, the Board of Directors has averaged in size of about 15 volunteers who are all former unit members. We continue with the original mission, but have expanded it to award merit based scholarship to the children and spouses of all former and current unit members. Our expense ratio is 1.5%. 98.5% of all donated funds goes directly to the merit based scholarship awards.

    To go beyond this in scope and size would require a large full time paid support staff. Well beyond what we can reasonably manage.

    Thank you, Bill

    Bill, where are you located? Are you in/from the Winner area? I think it would be beneficial if you could provide more details as to the hunt, etc.

    Is the purpose of this post to inform the community of the upcoming charity hunt, to solicit donations or something else? I guess I agree with DakotaZeb and would like to see some more information. I know you stated your college scholarships are for the family members of the Army unit you represent but what about the charity pheasant hunt? Open to everyone or just the members/family members of this unit? Also can you tell me what unit is "America's most Elite Fighting Force"?

    To answer the above, the purpose of my post is to inform the pheasant hunting community of a unique opportunity to join a great hunt and support a worthy cause. Due to forum restrictions, the detailed information paper cannot be added as a downloadable attachment. I must be directly contact at this e-mail address: bowen@unitscholarshipfund.org

    Basic hunt description: Arrival on Dec 6th into South Dakota. If you fly into Pierre (primary) or Rapid City (alternate), a USF Board member will pick you up and transport you to the lodge that we are partnered with near the town of Winner, SD. If you drive, we will meet you in the town of Winner at a designated location. Once there, the 3-day hunt is all-inclusive (meals, lodging, ammo, bird cleaning, guides, dogs, trap shooting, open bar, etc). Three days of hunting will culminate the evening of the 9th with a closing supper and awards for shooting and hunting competitions. After a farewell breakfast on the morning of the 10th, the USF will transport you back to the airport to begin your journey home.

    I hope this answers most of the questions out there. All other details can be e-mailed to you. This is the first hunt I have ever volunteered to sponsor, so am a bit new at this. Thank you to all who have sent me an e-mail requesting details.
